on An Inquisitive Slender Mongoose

The little creatures are also very special.

What a great find on your drive Sean. The mongooses are so difficult to track, and when spotted, disappear so quickly. You managed to capture some amazing images of this little guy so thanks for sharing. I must share however, that they seem to possess a bit of an evil stare, so certainly not as cute as a leopard cub that you had hoped to find.

What a great and unexpected experience to have. I always think those moments are just around the corner on a game drive.

What a fun benefit to your patience Sean! Those guys are really cute and it is great that you got such great images! Thanks!

What a complement that was to you! When we are peaceful in our hearts and homoring of nature they reward us with their trust. From your posts I would say this Mongoose summed you up very well 😉

Hi Sean, the little Slender Mongoose is terribly inquisitive sniffing around the leopard den. Non the less it is fantastic to take notice of them as well. Loved the foto’s and especially the Leopard cub.

it’s not always the big five…

I love mongooses (?). How many species are there at Londolozi?

Thanks for this delightful story of your meeting with a slender mongoose.

I love mongooses (mongeese?!) … could watch them forever. Though as you note in the blog, the slender mongoose is tough to watch for more than a couple of seconds as it crosses the road. Have had better luck with dwarf and banded mongooeses, who are a little more forthcoming!

I have never met a mongoose at Londolozi! What a treat to not only meet one but spend some time!! Thank you for sharing ! Victoria

Sean, pretty cool little creature. Thanks for the update.

Very cool sighting and accompanying post Sean!
